    When Alia starts the conversion of the WinForms game from .NET 4.5, she starts by unloading the project from Visual Studio. However, it is still within Visual Studio. Is she working with VS 2019?

    Scott and Olia, I really enjoyed the video. I do have some hopefully constructive feedback on the presentation however. It seemed that Scott was talking over Olia frequently and it made the video seem somewhat disjointed particularly during the demos. It seemed like Scott wanted to really do all of the demos himself and proceeded to do a bit of "backseat" driving at times. Overall though, very good content. Keep up the good work guys!

    Doctor Who, thanks for the question!
    Yes, I’m working in VS 2019. But you can unload a project in any VS. When you do it, in the Solution Explorer you will see just one line saying “MatchingGame (unloaded)”. When you right-click on, the option “Edit MatchingGame.csproj” becomes available (it was not there when the project was loaded). That is only for old style project files. For the new SDK-style projects the option “Edit MatchingGame.csproj” is always available on the right-click on the project in Solution Explorer so there is no need to unload a project.

    Hey Olia, Can we get the project files shown where the game converted to an WebApp? That'd be very helpful.

    Scott, aside from Blazor, is Microsoft looking into something like Ooui (

    I am very hopeful with the performance improvement of .NET Core 3.0 and the future use of IOT-based applications. I think the future is there.

    Many thanks Scott and Olia for the information :)

    Are there any plans to support more OS'es beyond Windows for desktop applications?

    Is it possible to use the logic project (which is .NET Standard) in the web app? I mean why did you have to rewrite the entire logic in Razor project? Why can you reuse Logic project reference there?
